Surviving Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) July 16, 2020

Surviving C-19
July 16th, 2020
2:37 PM
178 Days since first US infection

The only mention of C-19 on Fox news that I saw today was this “Pompeo says China will ‘pay a price’ for pandemic”. 
Let’s get this straight.

IF China was the epicenter for case zero (science disagrees as we found evidence of the virus in waste water in Italy and Spain dating back to spring of 2019, months before China noticed the virus)

And IF China also tried to lock down the virus when they found it and failed (Which is evidentially true). The world cannot then fault China for the virus, as they did not make it.  This is like trying to say that baseballs were invented by the guy who failed to catch a pop fly.

IF China invented the virus in a lab, and it got loose (little evidence for this, but there are suspicious qualities to the virus which lead folks to speculate that), we would never be able to prove it.

Hence Pompeo’s railing against China about the virus is pure political spin, trying to blame China for the Administration’s own failures to react to the virus properly. Mind you they are blaming others while they continue to sit on their hands as we Americans die of C-19.

Makes me ask why.
